Vegano Zuppa

Lynda Hayes


I love making a pot of soup on a cold day but today I just wanted to get in the kitchen and cook! So I made up a recipe for a veggie minestrone style soup. I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but I had lots of veggies in the house to use up. I did not sacrifice any flavor here and kept it healthy and low-fat.
